CBD hemp oil standardised to 6.4% cannabidiol (CBD)
Today’s increasingly fast pace of life together with family and work pressures can upset emotional equilibrium over time and manifest as anxiety and depression. To address these emotional dips, we all too often turn to drugs - which have medium and long-term side-effects - when natural phytotherapeutic solutions are available that are just as effective.

Researchers have therefore become interested in a wild medicinal plant from Asia,Apocynum venetum (Luobuma) , which has been used for more than 600 years in traditional Chinese medicine. An extract is obtained from its leaves which contains no hyperforin but is particularly rich in glycoside flavonols: rutin, astragulin, quercetin, ...
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid molecule found in hemp (Cannabis sativa), just like the well-known psychotropic substance, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However unlike THC, CBD has no narcotic properties.
THC was the first psychoactive ingredient to be discovered in marijuana (1-3), but it was only in the 1990s that scientists identified the endogenous signalling system now known as the endocannabinoid system. This is a collection of endogenous messengers (endocannabinoids) and specific receptors located on external cell membranes (CB1 and CB2 receptors).
It works on a simple principle: when the body deems it necessary, endocannabinoid messengers are produced which bind to their corresponding receptors, triggering various cellular responses such as stimulation of appetite, limitation of synaptic transmission, anti-nociceptive effects (pain relief), hypothermia or reduction of spontaneous locomotion (4). ...
